NDO/VNA - Vietnamese people in Cambodia and the UK have held their Lunar New Year (Tet) celebrations, with Vietnam’s biggest traditional festival just over a week away.
A banquet was held by the Vietnamese Embassy in Cambodia on February 6, attracting representatives from among the Vietnamese businesses and students in the country, the Association of Vietnamese-Cambodian people, and some Vietnamese provinces bordering Cambodia.
Addressing the event, Ambassador Vu Quang Minh noted Vietnam’s achievements last year, adding that 2017 was a year of significant diplomatic successes, especially the hosting of the APEC Summit, which exalted the stature of the country.
On February 5, nearly 200 Vietnamese students of the University of the West of England, located in the UK city of Bristol, and their international peers from nearby universities also gathered for a programme of celebrations for Tet.
The event is an annual occurrence and featured numerous activities, including plays, musical performances, and a fashion show.
